Abstract

<p>The <i>Mahāvastu</i> cites Early Buddhist texts and shows when they were recited. In the <i>Mahāvastu</i>, handed down by the Mahāsāṅghika-Lokottaravādin, the Exalted one recited the <i>Ratanasutta</i>, included in <i>Mahāsūtra</i>s, in order to dispel evil. On the other hand, in the <i>Vinaya</i> of the Mūlasarvāstivādin, the Exalted one recited mantras. This shows that the Mahāsāṃghika-Lokottaravādin shares the same tradition as the Theravāda, and the Mūlasarvāstivādin has a hint of Esoteric Buddhism. I compared the <i>Sahassavagga</i> with the <i>Sahasravarga</i>. In the <i>Mahāvastu</i>, the <i>Sahasravagra</i> is recited to show the advantage of Buddhism and convert outsiders. Concerning verse 109 in the <i>Sahassavagga</i> included in the <i>Dhammapada</i>, I compared five versions of texts, and looked into the process of bifurcation.</p>
